About Me
Hi I am Deb from Allison, Iowa. About 2 1/2 years ago I was bit by the quilting bug when trying to decide what to do with a pile of my husbands jeans(he passed away 6 years ago along with my youngest son in a farming accident). I wanted to make something as a keepsake for my other 3 kids. So I got some flannel and starting cutting on the jeans and the quilts were born!! My kids loved them and that was the beginning of this addiction!!

I have 3 married kids that between them have 9 little ones ranging from age 9 down to 4 days old. The oldest is a girl, Taylor, and I have been teaching her to sew - we have so much fun making pillowcases, bags, etc. Last summer she completed her first quilt and she keeps bugging me to sew more and more which I love!! Her twin brother and sister also have made pillowcases(the hot dog method) and the girl twin, Brynn has just started on her first quilt.

I am starting to teach a few classes and i am involed with a quilt group at my Church

Happy Quilting!!

Deb

It's not any wonder you have heard the name Wurzer before. The phrase "go forth and multiply" certainly applied to them. I have run across people here in Texas with the name and after we chat, I find out that they are the grandchildren of one of my father in law's brothers or sisters. It really is a small world! Have a great evening and keep on making those beautiful quilts!

The last name is Wurzer. As a matter of fact, Elaine (Wurzer) was just at Gunderson Lutheran in LaCrosse for a double bypass about 2 weeks ago. I think she has an appointment at GL this week in Decorah. Her husbands name is Ken. They live on the family homestead in St. Lucas. There were 13 kids all born between the early 20's and mid thirties. My husband's mother's family is from Jackson Junction. Their last name is Krall. Edna(grandmothr) died in 1996 when she was 95. What a spunky lady she was. Did everything for herself until she broke her hip in 95, then had to rely on the neighbors. What town is Allison near?

Deb, I love your quilts. And the bags are wonderful too. You have such lucky grand kids. They get to learn to sew and quilt and then you make them all those wonderful outfits too. I have relatives on my husband's side up in St. Lucas, near Decorah. I used to live in Manchester many moons ago in another life. Keep on making your beautiful quilts!

Thanks, Deb. Zoe is 8 - 9 in Sept. She entered a tied quilt 2 years ago. I helped with the binding on that, too. It didn't seem to be a problem then. This time she quilted in the ditch with a decorative stitch, so had to keep it really straight. Most of the time she did, but there are a few boo boos. I didn't step in; I just let it happen and coached her how to get back where she belonged. Overall, it looks pretty good. She also did a pillowcase and it turned out really well.
I will have to drop them off because she won't be here on Friday. I pre-registered her online, so it should be quick & dirty. :-)

Yes... Deb I would like to have the All Wrapped Up" pattern if you wouldnt mind giving me the information.

Thank you.

Deb... Do you think she would do it for someone else also? I would love to have the pattern.

Deb, I think I can scan and email the pattern to you. I'll try it out tomorrow. If not, I'd be glad to copy and mail it. It would be great for 4-H. It's just sewing strips and pretty easy applique. I'd love to see what they come up with.

The Pieceful Times quilt was designed by Debbie Caffrey. I received it from Quilter's Cupboard, Ankeny, as a Mystery Quilt. It isn't hard at all, pieces fit together well. Good luck in finding the pattern.
